Reagan Day symbolism

Republicans are pushing a bill to create a Ronald Reagan Day — a state day honoring the former president. Although it wouldn’t give state employees another paid day of idleness, this proposal is a bit silly. Reagan was a decent governor and a great president, but Republicans should spend less time on such meaningless symbolism and more time on the real work of limiting government — something even Reagan couldn’t manage in his eight years as president.

    Like we don’t have more importnat things on our plate in California that Nehring and Del Beccaro waste Republicans’ time on something like this? Such misplaced idol worship only illustrates the inability of GOP to articulate conservative principles for bread and butter issues at the local level. Instead, they propagandize with symbolism and simplistic talking points about “national” causes somewhere else. That Del Beccaro is the only candidate to succeed Nehring for CRP Chair does not bode well for Californians. BGR
